Free Public Lecture in DC: Capturing an Image of a Black Hole
Saturday, April 18 at 7:00 p.m. Washington Marriott Wardman Park

Washington, DC 20008
Black holes are cosmic objects so small and dense that nothing, not even light, can escape their gravitational pull. In 2019, the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) captured a photograph of a black hole—a new milestone in scientific history. How was this accomplished? Come to the public lecture to find out from Dr. Sheperd Doeleman, the director of the EHT project.
This event is free to attend and all are welcome. Let us know you’re coming—RSVP on Facebook.
